Nairobi Health

Nairobi Health (20)

Mpango wa kando is a well known phrase in this city. Most Nairobians don’t need to have it spelt out. And a good number practise the trade whenever they choose, or if a chance presents itself.

But therein lies a good recipe for disease.

Cosmetic surgery, beware of botched results

Cosmetic surgery is a thriving industry, mainly popularized by celebrities who constantly find reason to uplift their appearances. But it’s not just celebrities who drive the cosmetic health industry, the trade has caught up in our part of the world as well. Boob jobs, facelifts, penile lengthening and vaginal refreshing are all too commonly done in our setting.

Could Nairobi men be healthier?Nairobi is home to many men, lots of men in fact. Simple inferences and calculations from the 2013 Kenya Demographic Estimates quickly imply that more than half a million men aged between 25 to 64 years live in Nairobi. And the majority of these men, 90% in demographic estimates, are literate. To a lay person, this means well-informed and able to make reasoned and healthy judgements.

Setting your own health standardsThe definition of health is somewhat controversial.The WHO’s definition is the most quoted, stating health to be “a complete state of physical, mental and social well-being, and not merely the absence of disease or infirmity.” This definition was formalized over half a century ago, but has since been challenged by others.

Sexapades in the city: busted or demise?Mpango wa kando is a well known phrase in this city. Most Nairobians don’t need to have it spelt out. And a good number practise the trade whenever they choose, or if a chance presents itself.

But therein lies a good recipe for disease. The only safe sex is sex with a single partner, of known sexual health status. Anything else, no matter the potential for untold pleasure, portends health risks. Individuals predispose themselves to sexually transmitted infections (STIs), including HIV. And this is further compounded by additional risky behaviour that accompanies unsafe sex. So called sexapades are difficult to separate from excessive alcohol and drugs.
